A federal health panel for the first time acknowledged concerns that BPA , a chemical found in thousands of plastic products like baby bottles, may cause cancer or other serious disorders.
Public health advocates said the report should spur the government to ban BPA, at least in baby products. Formula-fed infants are most vulnerable to the chemical, because it is found in baby bottles as well as the linings of canned powdered and liquid formula. They get a double exposure.
The FDA has been under pressure from numerous studies to regulate this chemical but so far has not taken action.
You may want to consider using non-plastic bottles to lower the potential risk of exposure to BPA.
